Longshaw Farm Leader case study.
The farm was purchased in 1952 and has developed since that time. The project is to improve productivity whilst reducing the carbon footprint and to improve the sustainability of the farm. Purchase of a slurry separator will help reduce nutrient loss and a dribble bar and macerator will help to spread slurry more evenly and consistently, increasing grass growth.
The support of Leader in this project is needed to help the business progress in terms of embracing new technologies and reducing the carbon footprint, helping to make the business sustainable.
